obama, who has repeatedly made offers to republicans on cuts to social security. the recent fiscal cliff negotiations, president obama gave house speaker john boehner a third proposal, increasing the tax rate threshold to $400,000 and adding chained cpi, which is a benefit reduction in social security. that's the only way you can look at it. republicans did not take the plan. when harry reid was negotiating with senate republican leader mitch mcconnell, the president allegedly asked reid to put social security reforms back on the table, according to multiple accounts, senator reid was so unhappy with the proposal, he threw it into a burning fireplace in his office. the white house says a formal offer on social security was never made. but president obama's position on social security reform really isn't hard to find. in his 2006 book, "the audacity of hope," president obama wrote the problems with the social security trust fund are real but manageable. in 1983, when facing a similar problem, ronald reagan and house speaker tip o'neill got together and shaped a bipartisan plan that stabil

moments from the last election involved president obama himself telling a laugh out loud deadpan joke. but it did happen once. >> i think governor romney maybe hasn't spent enough time looking at how our military works. you mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changed. we have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. we have ships that go underwater. nuclear submarines. >> ships that go underwater. after that moment in the third presidential debate last year there was a brief but fascinating flurry of really earnest fact checking about the question of whether or not there really are fewer bayonets in the u.s. military right now. remember? tmz had an exclusive inside scoop on outrage from the bayonet community. "we are not obsolete." in fact, the last famous bayonet charge in american history was in 1951 during the korean war. but as rajiv chandrasekran of the "washington post" noted at the time of that debate, it was in 2004

for some of the toughest firmte firstterm decisions. this is obama's team. a lot different from gates, from even panetta and from clinton or petraeus. >>> all right, moving on. battle lines are set for a march budget showdown and the leading players appear to be doing their best to establish, i would argue, the low ground. remember, three deadlines coincide two months from now. setting up some form of triple jeopardy, if you will. the treasury department runs out of options to cover u.s. borrowing risking potential default. the whole debt ceiling business. the domestic and defense cuts postpone for two months by the fiscal cliff deal kick in. also known as sequester around these parts. of course, march 27th, the big the continuing resolution that funds the entire government expires. that may be where things truly heat up. mitch mcconnell drew a line in the sand saying though republicans are willing to work on tax reform as part of upcoming budget negotiations, new tax revenue is, "absolutely off the table." >> we've resolved the tax issue now. it's over, it's behind us. >> the tax issue is
